As there were some exchanges about the survey here and as I advertised
it on this mailing list as well, I thought you might be interested by
my initial analysis:

Thank you for your participation!

1.  The survey seems to be a Self seLected Opinion Poll (SLOP), so I'm
taking it with a grain of salt the size of the Sears Tower.  There's no
margin of error included in the poll either and based upon the sample as
being from the mailing lists (where people are generally active anyway)
I'd say it's fairly skewed.
2.  The conclusions are generic, wishy-washy and are based on guesses
and assumptions with no hard underlying data.  How much in contributions
has LibreOffice raised?  Does that fit in with what the survey said?
Where is the Quality Assurance in the web site?  And why would an end
user be interested in that?
3.  User support and quality assurance do not require too much time or
technical knowledge.  Remind me not to hire you for either of those
tasks in my business.  Those are things that professional companies hire
entire other companies to do.

I'd give this project an F in a freshman statistics class, and would not
base any strategy off of this "survey"
